I've hopped on the scale a few times in the last week because I'd noticed my Size 8's getting loose. Looks like I'm on to Size 6 now! Also.... I can wear knee high boots. WITH ROOM TO SPARE! No acrobatics to get into or out of boots that previously would have taken up shop at my cankle and refuse to move an inch further.
I'm also nearly "NORMAL" for my BMI!
Sleeve Gastrectomy is a surgical weight loss tool in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, following the major curve. The open edges are then attached together (often with surgical staples, glue and possibly cauterization) to form a sleeve or tube with a banana shape. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach and is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible.
